Reading Groups

Adventure far away, laugh out loud, nourish your mind, feel understood. Then tell us all about it.

Our reading groups cultivate a community of readers and writers who discuss, appreciate, and digest the books that shape our world. Join us regularly, or pop in when the selection speaks to you.

Lit Mag League

Lit Mag League meets quarterly (and online, for now) to discuss a recent issue of a print literary magazine, often with a visit from a contributor or an editor. You can join for a single meeting; there's no extended obligation. Our conversations are juicy, and we are never without snacks. Find information on our next meeting here!

Better Off Read

Better Off Read is our book club collab between The Porch and East Nashville’s independent bookstore, The Bookshop. We love a flew-beneath-the-radar paperback gem. Our selections are sure to surprise and delight.

Antiracist Reading Group Starter Guide

We developed a starter guide for anyone looking to organize fruitful, compassionate discussions about works of literature in an antiracist context.  

We’re saving you a seat.

Literary friends, right this way. Membership supports our mission and comes with perks.
